MURMANSK, April 21. /TASS/. The telegram that Russia’s Federal Service for Civil Aviation (Rosaviatsiya) issued regarding a possible suspension of chartered flights to destinations in Turkey does not have a time limit, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said on Friday.
"The telegram doesn’t contain any indication of the time limit, which is indefinite," he said answering a reporter’s question of whether the warming had a deadline.
"Rosaviatsiya didn’t revoke this notification," Sokolov said.
The federal service sent out a telegram at the beginning of this month wherein it warned of a possible suspension of chartered flights to Turkey for political reasons.
The previous time Russia suspended chartered flights to destinations in Turkey was at the end of October 2015 as a retaliation to the attack on a Russian bomber jet in Syrian airspace by the Turkish Air Force.
Chartered services between Russia and Turkey were relaunched in August 2016.
